Okay so I am getting the X-Fi Xtreme Music after having listened to one side by side with audigy 2 zs and a normal home theatre system

Question is now: What digital cable to get for the output????

Will a cable like this: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1051826210984 work with it?

I am not actually paying that price but merely using it as a reference.

I'm looking at that? Will that cover my basic needs? I mainly listen to music and play games. I kinda like how my motherboard has integrated sound though, whats the bigdeal? Realtek = POS?

Well, if ya found a mobo that had Nvidia Ntune, i would say to grab that, its almost as good as alot of the low-midrange sound cards.

Hey Graham, have alook at my thread in the Multimedia section of this forum, it's all about audio cabling (hence the title).
